Michael Wallace completed his academic work towards a bachelor of fine arts degree from Cal State East Bay in December of 2011. The fruits of his studies are paying off with his being named director of the Cinema Place Gallery in downtown Hayward.
The first exhibit he is the gallery's curator for is "The Watercolor Show," which opened Jan. 10 at the gallery located at 1061 B Street. For this show, Wallace has invited nearly 30 watercolor artists to exhibit their work. According to Wallace, the artworks run the gamut from traditional landscapes and flowers to contemporary pieces.
The gallery is open to the public from noon to 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. The show runs through Feb. 23.
